WinThusiast -> Xbox lost Microsoft $4 billion over 4 years (9/28/2005 3:35:49 AM)

Wish we had $4 billion to lose in the wash...[:D][:)]

Microsoft is a company with deep pockets, but nevertheless, even we the rich and mighty INQ hacks had to suppress a shudder when it was revealed that the Xbox may have lost Microsoft upwards of $4 billion in four years. The company has always been willing to operate at a loss in order to establish itself in the gaming industry, and we reported back in July that they're willing to lose money on the Xbox 360 as well. $4 billion is still a massive loss to be making however, and one has to wonder how long and how much Microsoft bean counters have set aside for the Xbox franchise to start making money.
